    Amazing, extremely nice textures and very nice clean tidy highlighting, allround extremely good looking.

    Thanks Clouds, although I am still trying to learn this stuff so glad to hear you like it!
    Thanks Gorb, working on it
    Okay, messing around with trying to get the white highlights on the gold bits as Arkaan recommended (photo is a little too dark and I did muck up a spot or two) but here is what I have so far

    Thanks Graishak!
    So, I think I have finished basing the Infinity Figure I did. The sand texture is still wet so it doesn't look that great, but I will post photos tomorrow when it is dried. Going to try to take it down to a small contest tomorrow.

    Mental note, tape or mask off base next time so I don't get the run over

    Well, one of the pieces I brought did take an award, just not the one above! They were only running four categories and only awarded 1st place award and then a Best in Show. One of my other figures just missed out on the Best in Show. There were some really good entries, but it was pretty small (maybe around 15 or so entries). I think I am going to redo the base for this figure though as I realized that the sand effect texture I used from AK Interactive didn't set up quite right on the parts outside the base. I think that if it is applied to thick it doesn't give the same consistency/texture as the thinner layer I used on the figure base part.

    Congrats ekipage! Always good to get a win out of it, a little wind in your sails
    I think that Infinity girl looks great, I like the base you put her on.

    The infinity model looks great. nice colour palette and good contrast

    Thanks Gorb and CB, yeah was a little surprised she didn't win for the fantasy figure. Surprisingly I won with the Painter guy I posted back several months ago as it apparently was the best of the few dioramas that were entered. I also received a perfect score for the female necromancer (lost out on judges decision since there was another perfect score and they were only giving out first places) and just missed out a perfect score on the second Malifaux figure (based on their comments this one would have one but for the base) I did (these two):

Size:  68.5 KB They said the only reason I didn't get a perfect score for the Malifaux figure was because of the damage to the base (yeah I broke the one edge and didn't have time to properly fix it before the show, so just glued it back on)

    Anyway, here is a better shot of the Infinity figure with the sand all dried up

Size:  125.1 KB I don't quite like it on the outside areas as much as within the actual figure base. I think having to apply it a little thicker it doesn't give the textured look on the outside as much. Will just have to use it a little more carefully next time I use it.

    And I decided to play around with some other basing materials (a la St Toad) and see what I can do

    I think I need to figure out how to use the moss a little better though

    Hey! Congratulations on your good showing in the competition. Always good to get that feedback, too.
    Eager to see what you cook up with that base. I’d suggest you figure a way to get some variation in the elevation before you get too far down the road with it.
